The runners fought through a sunny, humid day that turned into a few thunderstorms in the evening, but three stalwarts made it to their destiny with a 3100 mile finish. The Austrian Champion Surasa Mairer finished in fourth place overall in 51 days,12 hours, her fourth finish in the longest race. Sopan Tsekov finished his third 3100 mile race after five dnf's in 12 years, reaching that brass ring in 51 days, 16 hours. Kaneenika Janakova finished in sixth place overall, second lady in 51 days 17 hours, only 20 minutes behind Sopan. It was her third straight finish, and one of the most difficult for her.

Thanks for following the race this year, friends. May the wind always be at your back!
